As is I think the tie knot looks very big for the spare space that is given to it.

 

That's partly the angle re. tie knot, but you're quite right about the collar.  This and yesterday's actually, part of a set of shirts I had done that I am not really getting on with.  I'm in consultation with Dr Spoo about some ready-made additions.lookaround.gif

My tailor has reduced the top of the shoulders on several jackets of mine with good results. He's experienced in making suits, not just your average seamstress. It's expensive but worth it. On most RTW jackets I try on, chest and hips fit well (I can't size down) but shoulders are always wide...

Lots of good outfits today it appears!

Gotta say I love this sunny autumn weather....


Only noticed after taking pictures that my PS was trying to escape. It was promptly returned to it's proper position...

That really is a lovely tie... I'm jealous of all you folks who get to try fall/ winter clothing. I live in Sri Lanka so it's basically humid all year round.

I feel validated in my satorial choices today as I'm wearing virtually the same outfit today, albeit in a smaller size.

And I feel validated that you are judging your own validation against my attire satisfied.gif

Brioni tie, Light blue Hermes shirt, charcoal grey wool pants, MacNaughton's vest from Bookster (Matching pants need lengthening).

Question, can a satin backed vest be worn without a jacket?

PT, I know this has been discussed before, but I really do think you need to be mindful of your chest when getting dressed. A larger, developed chest makes it hard to wear items with a lot of waist suppression and look natural. Especially when this tight-tailoring creates curves (as is the case with your vest above), it can make your proportions look quite off. I think a straighter, slightly boxier silhouette might flatter your build more. Though, to be honest, I don't think wearing a vest alone will ever do your body that many favors. Larger shoulders on jackets will help alleviate the chest appearance issue, but when it's just a vest there's no way to manipulate the proportions. Just my $0.02.

The last few fits (barring the sandals from last week) have been much better than the really out there fits you've worn in the past and I like this one too, PT.

By the way, has anyone commented on your similarity to Tommy Lee Jones before?
